Expert in Soil Chemistry
Expert ID: 731295 New Hampshire, USA
A company having problems with corrosion and leaking of under floor pipes. Expert was asked to address the problem. It was found that the cause was that the soil oxidation/reduction equilibrium was range conducive to corrosion.An aircraft engine builder was told by the state that their waste containing potentially toxic heave metals had to be placed in a dump which would allow no leakage for 100 years. Expert was asked to help with design.A government laboratory requested consultation and a guest lecture on probable rate of radioisotope diffusion from a burial site.A company asked ExpertHarter to help characterize fly ash leachate.Prepared a summary of engineering applications and related properties of Bentonite clay for a company selling this material.
